Re: Galician Town 19th century German Names #galicia

I have been away and am just catching up on my mail but wanted to make sure to
answer Stephen Denker's question as it might be of interest to other Galicianer
researchers.

The book Stephen is looking for is "Genealogical Gazetteer of Galicia" by
Brian J. Lenius. This Gazetteer include all the "official" German place names and
also some "unofficial" ones as well. This Gazetteer is, in my opinion a _must_
for any serious Galician researcher.

By the way, the only places in Galicia that had "official" German language place
names were some of the larger cities/towns as well as the German Colonies. Many
of the colonies had "unofficial" German names but the "official" names were Polish
names. All other places other than the handful in the gazetteer in the German
placename list, had Polish as the official names under Austria.

Is there a book or gazetteer or map with the town names with their
OFFICIAL Austro-Hungarian Empire names in GERMAN?

Here are some two pages that I posted to Viewmate for translation.
These pages are >from Bialystok records, so maybe someone out there
who can read the language might find a family connection among them.
I have a few more to upload and will do so in the next few days.
You might want to check back to see once again if any of your
antecedents happen to appear by shear coincidence.

Good luck,

SIEGAL in Boston #poland

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I have a new mystery name cropping up in my family research.
The new Boston HIAS database shows my great-grandmother Chana
(Zylberman) Bordowicz coming in 1913 with her daughter Dwoire
to Boston.

She lists her destination as Nathan Siegal, Boston St, Boston.

I have never heard of Nathan Siegal before.
I do have a Zylberman cousin in Przasnysz who married an Abram
Daniel SZCZYGEL in 1845 in nearby Chorzele, but no clue if
that is related to Nathan in Boston.

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at

Descendant Tree of the Baal Shemtov #rabbinic

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Whilst researching my family I have just stumbled across the fact
that someone I am in touch with (we are trying to see if our
respective great-great-grandfathers were brothers) tells me that his
great-great-grandfather was the great-grandson of the Baal Shemtov.

Can anyone tell me if there is a printed 'family tree' of the
descendants of the Baal Shemtov 'on-line' or alternatively where
this would actually be written down.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Unusual names on official documents #general

Merv & Naomi Barnett
 

Dear Genner

Denise Abzill was puzzled by the seemingly "anglo" names on a death
certificate

I'd like to say I have had a similar but slightly different experience.
Some while ago I obtained British naturalisation papers for my husband's
ggrandfather, Jacob Barnett. He was naturalised in 1899. His parents
(by then no doubt deceased) were listed as Fanny & Woolf /BARNETT /on
these papers. I have never been able to visualise in Kovno that when
they went to the shop, shul or wherever, they would have been greeted by
such an anglicized name!!! I believe it was much easier to use this
name (obviously the name Jacob took on when he arrived in England)
rather than spell or explain a name with lots of consonants. I don't
believe they ever came to England.
